Many retired racing greyhounds do well living in homes with young children.

We aren't a pet-me-hug-me type of dog, however, so we tend to do better in homes with children that understand our needs or older children.

If you do have young children, or plan on being around young children, it's your responsibility to ensure the safety of both the child and your dog. This could mean teaching the child how to properly interact with your Greyhound, separating dog and child, or crating or muzzling your dog. If you have, or plan on having children, we highly recommend you read "Childproofing Your Dog" by Brian Kilcommons. Find it on our Suggested Reading Page.

In any case, GiNA will work with you to find the Greyhound best suited to your family and lifestyle.
